A tip for your trip!

    I guess Canada day is a all women venue music concert, Do you think Trudeau family is going a little to far with the feminist support, or the sell all give all to Quebec. Citizens need to speak up, allowing Trudeau and his wife promote gender bias or provincial favoritism is a problem in the long view of it all. I do not care if anyone is a feminist, but selling Canada to support personal agenda is not what Canada is about. Grow up, like a couple of childish spoiled kids running are country with there own personal agenda. Maybe the Trudeau can wear there fleur-de-lis on Canada day. Boycott this event, this is not about Canada it is about the Trudeau agenda.
